Let's Have Some FUN This Summer

So who’s ready to have some FUN?

We’re releasing FUN hard seltzer this week in 12-ounce cans throughout Shelby County. 

FUN Lime will be the first flavor available.

Six packs will start hitting store shelves Friday and will also be available in our taproom.

Our taproom is currently open to the public Friday 4-10 p.m. and Saturday 1-10 p.m. It’s also open for to-go beers 4-7 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.

This is a light, refreshing beverage that is perfect for our hot Memphis summers.

FUN hard seltzer is 4 percent ABV (alcohol by volume) and has only 90 calories, two grams of carbohydrates, and one gram of sugar. It’s also gluten free.

Harvest Creative designed the can art. 

We’re excited to add FUN hard seltzer to the Memphis Made family. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever made and we can’t wait to have some FUN with everyone.


Taproom Reopening This Weekend

After closing down due to the pandemic, our taproom is reopening on a limited basis starting this weekend.

We're going to be closed Thursday to do a deep cleaning. After that, we'll be open to the public Fridays 4-10 p.m. and Saturdays 1-10 p.m.

We'll be continue selling beer to-go 4-7 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.

To promote safety, here are a few rules:

*No one under the age of 21

*Parties are limited to 6 people

*No bar seating,

*Tables are not to be moved

*We are asking customers to remain seated unless you are ordering a beer or going to the bathroom. 

Other ways we're working to keep you safe: Our employees will be wearing masks. We’ll be serving beer in compostable cups and we will have recycle bins set up so you can just toss it in there when your beer is done. Inside and outside tables will be placed at least six feet apart. We’ll be sanitizing tables and seating after each person. 

We cannot wait to see everyone!


New Look Cans

You may have noticed something new on store shelves around town recently.

That's because we're sending out newly-designed cans of our three year-round beers: Cat Nap, Fireside, and Junt.

Be assured that the beers are the same fresh, full-flavored liquids you've come to know and love. We just decided it was time to freshen things up.

We worked with Harvest Creative to design the cans, giving them a clean look.

Look for the new cans at stores around town. You can find most of the accounts which carry out beer here:

We also sell these beers, in addition to seasonal and limited release beers, at out taproom. It's open every day 4-7 pm until further notice.


98.1 The Max Cans to Benefit Hospitality Workers

Memphis Made Brewing Co. is teaming up with 98.1 The Max and Ajax Distributing Company of Memphis to help hospitality workers in uncertain times.

We're canning some of  our Fireside beer in special 98.1 The Max cans with a portion of sales going to the Memphis Food Industry Emergency Worker Assistance Fund. 

Edible Memphis has set up this fund, located at

As part of the promotion, 98.1 The Max is highlighting the beer as part of its “Let’s Toast a Maximum Rocker” feature at noon and 5 p.m.

Edible Memphis has made almost 100 grants of $500 to laid-off or downsized workers to help bridge the need until more federal stimulus dollars are available, according to Bill Ganus, publisher of Edible Memphis. But there is still a need.

"Support fatigue is definitely setting in,” he said. “I completely get it. If you get a second wind, though, there are hundreds of requests from service industry workers that we haven't yet been able to support.”

Harvest Creative designed the cans for Memphis Made.

The cans will be available at hundreds of retailers in Shelby County, such as Kroger, Trader Joe’s, Buster’s Liquors & Wines, Joe's Wines and Liquor, Cash Saver, Superlo Foods, Cordelia’s Market, Fresh Market, Corks Wine & Spirits, and more.

Everyone needs a HUG

We figured everyone could use a HUG right about now. So we're putting it in a six pack.

Introducing HUG Wheat Ale. This smooth wheat ale with late addition hops is sure to put a smile on your face.

Since normal is out the window these days, we're gonna do something abnormal. A t-shirt, beer, and gift card package. Okay, it's not that abnormal, but we've never done one, so it's new to us.

Shout to our friends at Meddlesome Brewing for the inspiration. Here we go.


Tier one $40: you get a HUG LIFE shirt, and two six packs of HUG.

Tier two $75:  you get a HUG LIFE shirt, a case of HUG, and a $20 gift card to use when we open back up.
